It’s 49 days to go ’til the big day. There are still some minor and a couple of major things we have to accomplish. I’m still not too worried yet (I’m not sure when I would be), but there are some pressing matters that we have to attend to IMMEDIATELY.
On top of everything, I will have to intensify my training and if possible come into the gym 5-6 days a week from now. Weight training is still of primary importance to me, but I have to make sure that I am also doing lots and lots of cardio. The hardest thing is to eat clean. EATING CLEAN, during the holiday season is IMPOSSIBLE. I will have to try my best to filter out what I eat whenever we go out with friends too. I think I have to follow a strict “21-days to break a bad habit” approach on this one.
I think I also need to do yoga again. My sleeping pattern is weird again.
Please please please wish me luck.

I have not updated this for a while. Lots of things happened in the past few weeks. I had to stop my weight training because I had a muscle strain on my lower back and had been immobilized for a week. It didn’t help that during that 1 week, I was also down with the flu and just got back on my feet this week.
Yesterday, I headed back to the gym for my boxing session and a round of Zumba class.
I really can’t explain that feeling after exercising. It must be how drug addicts feel after a fix. It felt sooo good!
I started yesterday’s session with a 20-minute speed interval on the treadmill. Then 6 rounds of 3-minute sparring with my boxing trainer. Before doing my ab workouts, he advised me to join a Zumba class to lengthen my cardio and then we did some stretches.
To top it all off, I spent 15-minutes at the sauna to release all those excess water.
The result? I felt rejuvinated!
Note to self: Whenever you are in a slump, remember how this feels like.
